About this object

This book was published in time for Halloween, 2007. It features a lesser demon named Jakabok Botch, who lived a traumatised childhood in Hell.

In an interview in June 2017 Barker explains, " The book works: it scares the bejesus out of people but it also entertains people and, I mean, you're in the company of this individual who is really the dark half of me and, you know, it's not a coincidence that I chose 'B' for his second name..."
